The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs will offer a new doctoral degree in applied science.”This degree builds on the momentum of the completion of our new Science and Engineering building as well as a southern Colorado innovation strategy that relies on increased research activity by our faculty and advanced students,” said Chancellor Pam Shockley-Zalabak. “It will position the campus for greater funding in the long term and demonstrates our commitment to regional economic growth.”
The program will be phased in over the next several years, and the new degree will act as an umbrella for students seeking advanced study in mathematics, physics and applied bioscience. Additional fields of study can be added and students can work across fields as well.
This is UCCS’ fifth doctorate program. They are also offered in education, engineering, geropsychology, and nursing.
